Everybody's a poet

I never thought I would appreciate poetry but it is not all bad or all pretentious aka cafelitarati. Of course it is mostly what has been prescribed as part of the course;) Poetry should be upfront like clean prose and it really should quit being so egostical - TS. Eliot advocated impersonality of poetry, modern day wannabe poets could take the hint and quit focusing on their sorry lives.

Mermaid, Dragon, Fiend - Robert Graves
My Last Duchess - Robert Browning

Well, best of luck with you MA and yes, some of those acquisition plans did work out!

Nothing will ever make go through any kind of poetry--good, bad or otherwise. Unless I too decide to do an MA in English i guess :-)
